Amid reports of differences in the UP Sunni Central Waqf Board over the filing of a review petition in the Ayodhya case, Muslim body chairman Zufar Farooqi said members can discuss the issue in their 26 November meeting.

Earlier, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) had said it will file a review petition challenging the Supreme Court's verdict.

The Supreme Court on Saturday directed that Hindus will get the disputed land in Ayodhya subject to conditions. The inner courtyard will be handed over to a Centre-led Trust, and a suitable plot of land measuring five acres shall be given to the Sunni Waqf Board.

Filing Review Petition Against Ayodhya Verdict Not ‘Beneficial’: Mahmood Madani Faction of Jamiat

The Mahmood Madani faction of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind on Thursday said filing a review petition against the Supreme Court's Ayodhya verdict will not be "beneficial" though it was not averse to parties doing so as they have a "constitutional right".

A national executive meeting of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind (Mahmood Madani) was held in New Delhi on Thursday to discuss whether a review petition should be filed or not and whether the 5 acre land for building a mosque in Ayodhya be accepted, a statement by the group said.

"The executive of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind (Mahmood Madani) believes filing a review petition against the Ayodhya verdict will not be beneficial to Muslims. However, as different organisations have expressed their will to file the petition, it is their 'constitutional right' and we will not oppose it," it said.

Will Not File Review Petition in Ayodhya Case: UP Sunni Central Waqf Board

The Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board on Sunday said that it will not file a review petition in the Ayodhya verdict.

Its chairman Zufar Farooqui told PTI, "All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) may have decided to seek review of the court's judgement in the Ayodhya issue, but the stand of the Sunni Waqf Board of not doing so, remains intact."

"Before the judgement, the AIMPLB was repeatedly saying that it will abide by any judgement of the Supreme Court, then why is an appeal being made now," he asked.

AIMPLB to File Review Petition

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) will file a review petition challenging the Supreme Court's Ayodhya verdict.

"The land of the mosque belongs to Allah and under Sharia law, it cannot be given to anybody," AIMPLB secretary Zafaryab Jilani told reporters after a meeting of the board here.

"The board has also categorically refused to take five-acre land in Ayodhya in lieu of the mosque. The board is of the view that there cannot be any alternative to the mosque," he added.
